* DoubleStandardRapeDivineOnMortal: The Egyptian god Horus forces himself on [[spoiler:the only woman on Earth able to bear his child]] using mind control. The guy whose body he possessed to do this was less than pleased, and it remains a bitter point of their love triangle (since the possessed guy starts falling for her). Horus himself states he doesn't see it as rape after getting an earful from Nikopol, and when further pressed on it points out that he's AboveGoodAndEvil.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Jill remembers nothing of Nikopol, but they meet and are fascinated by each other, enabling them to start their relationship anew without Horus' interference(aside from [[DivineParentage Horus' contribution]] to their child, but said shapeshifting baby is rather fascinating as well).]]

Added DiffLines:

* HomoeroticSubtext: Between Nikopol and Horus. Technically, they're involved in a MFM threeway romance with the same woman through Horus possessing Nikopol during the act, but Horus takes an extraordinary interest in Nikopol as well, beyond what would be necessary to fulfill his own purposes.

* PossessionBurnout: Horus runs into this problem, as he can only successfully possess pure humans unaltered by genetic modification. As most of the humans in 2095 New York are augmented in some way, they eventually die after he takes over their bodies. Nikopol is suitable as a host body precisely because he's still unaltered, having spent time in a cryo-prison for several decades.
